Does anyone have information or know where I could find it on the symbolism
in Chinese art? I understand there is a hierarchy of flowers with the
lotus blossom at the top. Buddah sits on a throne covered with lotus
blossoms or so I was told. I have employed several search engines without
locating what I need. I am researching a blue and white porcelain bowl of
the Ming dynasy with peonies and lotus blossoms on it. Thank you. Again I
learn so much from your interesting discussions. You have my respect.
